Black history luncheon feeds the mind and body

February is Black History Month every year the guests plan, prepare and serve a soul food lunch.  On February 23, 2011 the menu was fried chicken, collard greens, candied sweet potatoes, cornbread, sliced tomatoes and onions, coleslaw, yellow cake with chocolate icing, and lemonade.  They served 80 women and children.  Not only were our bodies feed but our souls were feed with a reenactment of Rosa Parks sitting on the bus.  They were supported in this endeavor by Guest Services Caseworker, Angie Healy; and IUSB intern; Dawn Tousignant. Sixteen guests participated in THEIR day of sharing.  Special luncheon guest was Cheryl Anderson from Congressman Joe Donnelly’s office.
